In accordance with experts of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia, we offers to develop a portable version of MiRascan-R mine detector based on previously practiced operating principles.
As the above given illustration suggests, the mine detector to be developed consists of a detection element having both high frequency (microwave band) and low frequency (induction) channels. Both channels are employed simultaneously. The operation results of the induction channel are displayed on the monitor as an image as well. The detection element is placed inside the square frame of the two-dimensional scanner covered with the dielectric casing. Images received from both detection channels are processed in a real-time mode and displayed on the LCD monitor which is mounted on a handle in front of the operator. The mine detector handle has a counterweight block accommodating both interface and computer units, as well as a power source.
